Asalamualaikum

I was mooching around the internet and found another  old tafsir stating that Surah 51:47 means expanding.

You will have to check the arabic

Here is one of the available interpretations offered by one of the most respected Muslim scholars Al-Baidawi who lived in the 14th century. His interpretation (tafsir) is one of 9 that are most respected by Muslims.


وَٱلسَّمَاءَ بَنَيْنَـٰهَا بِأَيْدٍ, بقوة. { وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ } لقادرون من الوسع بمعنى الطاقة والموسع القادر على الإنفاق. أو { لَمُوسِعُونَ } السماء أو ما بينها وبين الأرض أو الرزق.

The translation of the part highlighted in blue reads,

"{expanding} means expanding the sky (heavens) or what is between it and the earth or the (expanding of) sustenance."

If the translation is correct it should be added to the site insha'Allah
